Solihull Reliability Trial 23/02/19

Recommended Posts

Inspired by 100 in 8 rides of the 60s.

Solihull ride started at the Blue Bell Inn out at Earlswood.

Weather forecast warm and sunny but to start cool and very foggy.

Pleased to say it cleared by Evesham.

Roger B and Tess set of and picked up Tim Crumpton just after the start but he shot of with a

faster group before we had chance for a chat.

Pleased to say we caught up with him at the stop at Fladbury for tea and cakes.

With a lot of catching up to do forgot to get the camera out.

I think his legs were hurting and decided to join us for a steady return ride.

A few pics of the ride back.

Found the Blue Bell to busy to get a drink so went round the corner to The Bulls Head and found it full of Solihull riders.
